    Hey

    Well seems like I'm moving to PE in about a month, going to study there at NMMU. So just want to ask some info from the PE members:blush:

    • Is the water there safe to use for aquarium use or do you thinks it's better to use synthetic saltwater?
    • Is there an aquarium club active in that region?

    I'm super excited and can't wait:thumbup:

    Depending where you get your water, but most of our coast is clean and the water is fine for aquarium use.
    wrt a active club, we dont have anofficial one, but we all know each other and it is easy to arrange a tank tour and meet up etc.

    Once you are here we will take you under our wings. @richardmatlock is always willing to help

    FINS? Know there is one in Cape Road, thought the one in buffelsfontein closed down long ago?? Also, dont think they sell marines.

    Best place for marine is Ultimate Aquatics, heugh road walmer. They always have something in stock....but be prepared to pay a bit more...or just bargain them down...;)

    The Bridge gets stuff in...but it is normally "being delivered next week"...and next week becomes next week becomes next week...LOL

    Hi, sorry, yes Ultimate Aquatics was the one I thought of and true about the next week becomes next week thing or maybe they are just that popular that every time we visit them the stuff we want is sold out haha.
